Attorney General Barr is unfit for office

Attorney General Barr is unfit for office

Time and time again, Attorney General William Barr has lied to the American public, abusing his power to minimize and cover up President Trump’s lawlessness.

We the People deserve better. Our representatives in Congress must impeach Attorney General Barr and remove him from office.

Why is this important?

Attorney General William Barr has made one thing entirely clear: he has no intention of serving the American people. Rather, as long as he’s in office, he will continue to abuse his power -- and act like President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer.

The Attorney General is supposed to defend our nation and our Constitution by making sure no one -- not even the president -- is above the law. They should be committed to upholding the principles of our democracy, not serving any single party or politician.

And with a president like Trump, who’ll do whatever it takes to get his way, a strong and independent Attorney General couldn’t be more vital. But Attorney General Barr has repeatedly proven that he will do the president’s bidding:

- He brazenly misled Congress and the American public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings, minimizing the Trump campaign's ties to Russian election interference in 2016…

- His Department of Justice attempted to bury the whistleblower complaint that spurred the House’s impeachment inquiry into Trump and uncovered a shocking plot to undermine our democracy...

- And he put the security of our elections in jeopardy by openly criticizing the decision to investigate foreign interference in our electoral process.

The American people will no longer sit idly by as Attorney General Barr defends a president who has committed multiple impeachable offenses. We must call on Congress to take back our democracy -- by impeaching Attorney General Barr and removing him from office.


Reasons for signing

  • AG Barr has shown himself to anything but the People's Attorney.
  • He argues for the president, one might say spins for the president in deceptive ways which is clearly not what his position is meant for. We pay taxes for cover up after cover up and it nauseates me.
  • The fool doesn't realize he is not trumps personal lawyer
